Monday morning musings…

Monday mornings mean different things to different people. For some it means the start of a new work week. For others it’s just another day. Wait a minute….while I take a sip of nice hot coffee, and try to figure out where I’m going with this:

Now this is what I’m talking about…

Monday Monday, so good to me,

Monday Monday, it was all I hoped it would be.

Oh Monday morning, Monday morning couldn’t guarantee

That Monday evening you would still be here with me.


Looks like this fad has already faded in the states but the Half-Aladdin, all-Vegas pointy boots are still creating a craze in Mexico No one knows the guy who started it, he’s still a mystery, but his legacy continues to go on. He’s simply known as "Cesar of Huizache"

And I thought Porte Ricans pointy shoes in the 1960s were radical!

Here’s a story with global repercussions:

IMF chief Strauss-Kahn in court to answer sex-attack charges

New York City hotel maid alleges violent assault; French politician "denies any wrongdoing," lawyer says.

IMF chief's arrest may speed up succession battle Possible leadership vacuum at lender as it tries to repair euro zone's debt woes. The shock arrest of the head of the International Monetary Fund may force the world's power brokers into a frantic search to find his replacement.


Emotions run high as most heed evacuation orders in Cajun country:  Flood anger: 'Saving the rich and burying the poor?'

This had to be a tough call. I feel for those whose homes are going to be flooded.

A hand-painted sign in front a deserted Butte LaRose home said it all: "My slice of heaven force-flooded straight to hell. God help us all."

In Stephensville, a small town near Morgan City, Ronnie Wiggins and his neighbors furiously filled sandbags to protect their houses.

Wiggins had few kind words to say about the spillway's opening.

"It's all about saving Baton Rouge and New Orleans while they flood people down here," Wiggins said, pointing out that most people in his neighborhood did not carry flood insurance.

"So I guess it's all about saving the rich and burying the poor?" he asked.

That’s about all for this morning folks. Time for me to head on down the road….
